A favorite among tourists

Camden Town is a district in north London, home to a huge, vibrant and colorful flea market which draws a hundred thousand people on the weekend! This is a favorite among tourists visiting London. There are several parts: Camden Lock, which is on the edge of Regent's Canal, is very nice in the summer with its small restaurant terraces serving America, Caribbean, African and Latin cuisine. The canal also allows visitors to come to Camden by boat! Or, you can get off at the Camden Town metro station. Camden Lock was a craft market, but now there are beautiful pictures, vinyl, souvenirs for tourists and hippie objects. The other part of the market is Camden Stables, the largest market, which was built on the former stables of the Midlands railway company. There are stalls selling trendy clothes, furniture, bric a brac, jewelry, and small gadgets. The market burned down on February 9 but there were no deaths (though about 400 people lost their jobs). Now the market is open normally as Camden Lock and Camden Stables were not burned.

London's most fun neighborhood

Camden Town is a tube stop on the Northern underground line in the London borough of Camden. It's famous all over the world, but what makes it so interesting and popular among tourists? Camden boasts one of the most colorful markets where you can find most anything but, more than that, the objects tend to be original and affordable. Another popular thing in Camden are the people who move there like the punks, hippies, goths and all the other "urban tribes" imaginable. To eat in the area, there are some streets are exclusively food stalls, where you can find Chinese, Indian, Japanese food and more's funny, the price changes by the hour of the day. It is unfortunate that in 2008 a fire burnt some of the streets, but it's well worth going nonetheless. No one can say they've been to London if they haven't visited Camden.

The prince of London neighborhoods, Camden Town has a unique character, with creativity and originality in the very air. Look out for the 3D shop signs that seem to be a part of the buildings, and greet the visitor in an unusual and special way.

A bit of everything, including art and ride

The Londoner staying and a friend who had lived in London, I was advised to go for a walk in Camden Town, north of the center of the capital. It was a good opportunity to get out of the historic monuments and go into something more typical London. So I got off the bus and came across a number of deli, fast food stalls and cheap imported clothing stores. Moving to a creek that runs out there, I got to the right, looking for something to eat. After strolling among stalls outdoor-shirts with pictures and funny sayings, handmade jewelry, handbags, coats, ... - I saw the options. Indian, Mexican, French, a bit of everything for less than 5 pounds English. What most attracted me were the chairs: True mini scooters, brightly painted, facing the creek, as you can see in the pictures. Across the street are the buildings 'official' Camden Markets: Old stables converted into vast hallways and mazes of food stalls, clothing, jewelry, jokes, wrestling masks, books, desk accessories , etc, etc, etc ... Things reasonably priced, and definitely very original ... I confess that I was right to leave the wallet at home, but I have spent a paste incredible! An essential stop for anyone who wants to go shopping, looking for something original, fun and cheap!

De todo un poco, entre arte y paseo

La londinense que me hospedaba, así como una amiga que había vivido en Londres, me aconsejaron ir a pasear por Camden Town, al norte del centro de la capital inglesa. Fue una buena oportunidad para salir de los monumentos históricos y adentrarme en algo más típicamente londinense.
Así bajé del bus y me topé con una cantidad de rosticerías, puestos de comida rápida y tiendas de ropa barata importada. Avanzando hasta un ríachuelo que pasa por ahí, me metí para la derecha, buscando algo de comer. Después de pasear entre puestos de venta al aire libre- camisetas con dibujos y frases divertidas, joyas artesanales, bolsos, abrigos, ... - vi las opciones. Comida india, mexicana, francesa, de todo un poco por menos de 5 libras inglesas. Lo que más me sedujo fueron las sillas: Verdaderos mini scooters, pintados de colores vivos, frente al riachuelo, como pueden ver en las fotos.

Del otro lado de esta calle están los edificios "oficialeS" de los mercados de Camden: Antiguas caballerizas convertidas en inmensos pasillos y laberintos de puestos de comida, ropa, joyería, artículos de broma, máscaras de lucha libre, libros, accesorios para el escritorio,etc, etc, etc... Cosas con precios razonables, y definitivamente muy originales... Les confieso que hice bien en dejar el monedero en casa, sino me hubiera gastado una pasta increíble!

Una parada indispensable para quien se quiera ir de tiendas, en búsqueda de cosas originales, divertidas y baratas!

The market was burned on February 9, but the two sides remain intact and open.

Hasta cien mil personas cada fin de semana

Camden Town es un barrio al norte de Londres, que tiene un enorme mercado de objetos de segunda mano, un mercadillo vibrante y colorado, que recibe la visita de hasta cien mil personas cada fin de semana! Es uno de los lugares favoritos de los visitantes de la capital británica.

Hay varias partes, Camden Lock, está al lado del Canal Regent´s, muy agradable en verano, tiene restaurantes en terrazas, y se puede probar la cocina Caribe y latino americana.

El canal también permite a los visitantes de venir a Camden en barco! Si no, se llega por la estación de metro línea negra de Camden Town.

Camden Lock antes era un mercado de artesanías, pero ahora se encuentran fotos viejas, souvenirs para turistas, objetos hippies…

La otra parte del mercado es Camden Stables, que es el mercado más grande, fue construido sobre antiguos establos de la sociedad de ferrocarriles de la Midlands. Hay tiendas de ropa de moda, pero también de estilo tecno, gótico, cosas alternativas, tiendas de muebles, unas tiendas están fijas, y otros son más bien puestos que cambian de vendedor cada semana, con joyas u objetos pequeños.

El mercado se quemó el 9 de febrero, pero estas dos partes siguen intactas y abiertas.

The fair of the vanities econmicas

Is the trace, as with capital letters, with all the acepcin of the word; the only place where you can shop, eat and stroll after time channels. As sound and visual contrasts as Cyberdog shop that offers "fluo" funky clothing inspiration Techno, dozens of art galleries and design, books, furniture and antiques, espaola food, Mexican, Vietnamese or Cuban, a calendar of events It seems endless and includes concerts, street theater and exhibitions, all this and more is Camden. The area that now comprises Camden Town was given until the time the Regent's Canal was constructed to link it with the Thames, a vigorous and fertile crops AGRICULTURAL area. His past as a market has no deep roots, because only in 1972 when they really began to rent the premises that were in the basement of the buildings to some craftsmen concerned. With them came the others, antique dealers, selling clothes and shoes, sb tiracervezas clever, to form what is now worldwide tour and meet the substantial quality of their goods. Add to this the daily opening of the market (instead of Sunday as initially), creation of a nearby subway station, and a current policy of continuous updating and improvement of the entire space which comprises sum. It really is a market to enjoy because it is not the typical offering trinkets inputs from the east, but everything you see has that aspect of quality (including coats lamb used as the one I bought for £ 12) . It's different, is unique, is Camden.

La feria de las vanidades económicas

Es el rastro, así con mayúsculas, con toda la acepción de la palabra; el único sitio donde puedes comprar, comer y un momento después pasear por sus canales.

Contrastes tan sonoros y visuales como la tienda Cyberdog, que ofrece ropa "fluo" de inspiración funky-techno, decenas de galerías de arte y diseño, libros, muebles y antigüedades, comida española, mejicana, vietnamita o cubana, un calendario de eventos que parece interminable e incluye conciertos, teatro o exposiciones callejeras,todo esto y más es Camden.

El área que hoy en día comprende Camden Town fue, hasta el momento que el Regent's Canal se construyó para enlazarlo con el Támesis, una vigorosa y fértil zona de cultivos agrícolas. Su pasado como mercado no tiene unas raíces nada profundas, ya que sólo fue en 1972 cuando realmente se empezaron a alquilar los locales que estaban en los bajos de los edificios a algunos artesanos interesados. Con ellos llegaron los demás, anticuarios, vendedores de ropa y zapatos, algún avispado tiracervezas, hasta formar lo que hoy todo el mundo visita y conoce por la considerable calidad de su mercancía.

A ello se sumó la apertura diaria del mercado ( en lugar del domingo como en un principio), la creación de una cercana boca de metro, y una política actual de continua renovación y mejora de todo el espacio que comprende.
Realmente es un mercado para disfrutar, ya que no es el típico que ofrece baratijas traídas de oriente, sino que todo lo que se ve tiene ese aspecto de calidad ( incluido los abrigos de cordero de segunda mano como el que me compré por 12 libras). Es diferente, es único, es Camden.

If you are looking for victims of fas...

If you are looking for Victims of Fashion, the latest alternative trends in shoes, bags, textiles, piercing, body art, incense, if you like to hunt, if you want to distract you. . . Look no further. "Welcome to Camden Markets." The last time I went there it was last year and I plan to return this year to the end of February because it is always with some zest that I love to go there. Because what makes the charm of this place it is eccentricity. About alternative fashion, we discover incredible things, like fashion Gothic, Punk, retro, Fetish distributed in small shops or each room offers its universe but also the vision of the difference. This is the place to go for the younger generation eager for recognition as London by the demonstration that the dress look that inspires them their power. Everyone agrees with preferences, differences, not the least segregation. A Camden everyone is free to say without being prey to ridicule, maybe this is precisely why I love this place. Camden is also the possibility of finding nice Pub, where everyone has his world as "Elephants Head" on Camden High Street, or the "The Good Mixer" on Inverness Street not to mention gothic "The Devonshire Arms "on Kentish Town Road. In short more than twenty Pub will offer beers and cocktails. Venture out to the canal and enjoy the friendly "Market Channel" recognized for the diversity of these small stands or for its low price. For lovers of old vinyl LPs see, you will find such gems in the shop "All Ages Records" on the "Main street" you will find more up close to the canal. I made a superb standard of "Montown" collection of old for just 30 pence 7. "In short what I just said above is just a small glimpse of what lies behind the Market Camden, expect the afternoon to see everything, because this place is full of small markets, streets and exhibition stands. sure to leave you with no doubt a little something, oh yeah oh yeah, remember to take your camera to keep in memory the different facades of different custom shops. metro station near Happy Discovery

Si vous cherchez les victimes de la Mode, les dernières tendances alternatives en matière de chaussures, sacs, textiles, piercing, body Art, encens, si vous aimez chiner, si vous cherchez à vous distraire, . . . Ne cherchez plus.

"Welcome to Camden Markets".

La dernière fois que je m'y suis rendu c'était l'année dernière et je compte bien y retourner cette année à la fin du mois de février Car c'est toujours avec un certain entrain que j'aime m'y rendre. Car ce qui fait le charme de ce lieu c'est bien son excentricité.

Concernant la mode alternative, on découvre des choses hallucinantes, comme la mode Gothique, Punk, rétro, Fétichiste repartie dans des petites boutiques ou chaque ambiance propose son univers mais surtout sa vision de la différence. C'est le lieu de rendez-vous de la jeune génération londonienne avide de reconnaissance tant par la démonstration vestimentaire que par le look que leur inspire leur courant. Tout le monde s'accepte avec ses préférences, ses différences, pas la moindre ségrégation. A Camden chacun est libre de s'affirmer sans être la proie des moqueries, c'est peut être ça que j'aime justement dans ce lieu.

Camden, c'est aussi la possibilité de découvrir des Pub sympas, ou chacun propose son univers, comme le "Elephants Head" sur Camden High Street, ou encore le "The Good Mixer" sur Inverness Street sans oublier le gothique "The Devonshire Arms" sur Kentish Town Road. Bref plus d'une vingtaine de Pub vous proposeront bières et cocktails maison. Aventurez vous vers le Canal et profitez du sympathique "Market Canal" reconnu pour la diversités de ces petits stands ou encore pour ses prix bas.

Pour les amateurs de vinyles voir vieux vinyles, vous trouverez des perles rares notamment dans la boutique "All Ages Records" sur la "Main street" vous en trouverez d'autres en vous rapprochant du canal. Je me suis fait une superbe collection d'anciens standards de la "Montown" pour à peine 30 pences le 7".

Bref ce que je viens de vous dire plus haut n'est qu'un petit aperçu de ce que cache le Marché de Camden, prévoyez l'après-midi pour tout voir, car ce lieu regorge de petits marchés, ruelles et stands d'exposants. Vous repartirez sans doutes avec un petit quelque chose, ah oui j'allais oublier, pensez à prendre votre appareil photos, pour garder en souvenirs les différentes façades personnalisés des différentes boutiques.

For me the best is the food

It's not what it was, it is true, but how to go to London and do not shop around Camden? The Camden and street market has changed dramatically in a few years. Possibly there live and circulate their own people, punks, neo-punks, hippies, and immigrants, but the place has become so busy that they are lost in the crowd. Camden Anyway still a great ride for the weekend. It is easy to get (Camden Tube station), and there is an amazing amount of clothing stores, jewelry, leather jackets, decorative objects and vintage clothing. However, for me the best is the food. As before, the food stalls Eastern (Vietnamese, Cambodian and Thai) are inescapable. A good idea is to return to the center of London on foot, through the beautiful Regent's Park.

Para mí lo mejor es la comida

No es lo que era, es cierto, pero ¿cómo ir a Londres y no darse una vuelta por Camden? El barrio de Camden y su espectacular mercado callejero ha cambiado en pocos años. Posiblemente viven y circulan por allí sus mismos habitantes, punks, neo-punks, hippies, e inmigrantes, pero el lugar se ha vuelto tan concurrido que éstos se pierden en la multitud. De todas maneras Camden sigue siendo un paseo genial para el fin de semana. Es fácil llegar (Estación de metro Camden), y hay una cantidad impresionante de tiendas de ropa, orfebrería, chaquetas de piel, objetos para la decoración y ropa vintage. Sin embargo, para mí lo mejor es la comida. Como antaño, los puestos de comida oriental (vietnamita, camboyana y tai) son ineludibles.
Una buena idea es volver al centro de Londres a pie, a través del precioso Regent's Park.

It 'a great place if you want to buy some souvenirs for friends or relatives ... There are also plenty of eating places.

Dove trovare di tutto a poco prezzo

Camden Town è una zona fantastica di Londra, piena di mercatini, puoi trovare oggetti, vestiti, accessori, e tante altre cose a poco prezzo. Se trattate sui prezzi farete ottimi affari. E' un ottimo posto se volete comprare qualche souvenir per amici o parenti... Ci sono anche tantissimi locali dove mangiare.

Market of love

Next stop: Camden Town Market. Just off the bus we have a Sunday gigantesto market where we can buy and eat whatever we want. Here we can find T-shirts with slogans Rogues and souvenir shops full of memories of London. It is a fantastic place where all the souvenirs we will something cheaper. We can also find clothes, suck "leather" or, the most striking to me, drug. Yes, in these markets sell sachets with "plants" in various colors, but honestly is what really surprised me because I was curious about what was in those bags. Well, another quality of this market is the countless food stalls there, where you get to sample everything. As a final curiosity there is also a set of typical foods of Galicia. Well, in short Camden Town is a place you must visit (especially on Sundays) and carry something in there, be it clothes, food, gifts, anything goes.

Market of love

Próxima parada: Candem Town Market. Nada más bajar del autobús nos encontramos ante un gigantesto mercadillo de domingo donde podemos comprar y comer lo que queramos. Aquí podemos encontrar desde camisetas con slogans pícaros a tiendas repletas de souvernirs y recuerdos de Londres. Es un fantástico lugar donde todos los souvenirs nos saldrán algo mas baratos. También podemos encontrar ropa, chupas de "cuero" o , lo mas llamativo para mi, droga. Sí, en estos mercados venden unas bolsitas con "plantas" dentro de varios colores, sinceramente es lo que mas me sorprendió ya que realmente tenia curiosidad sobre lo que habría en esas bolsas.
Bueno, otra cualidad de este mercado es la infinidad de puestos de comida que hay, en los que te dan a degustar de todo.

Como última curiosidad también hay un puesto de comidas típicas de Galicia. Bueno, en resumen Candem Town es un lugar que debeis visitar (especialmente en domingos) y cargar con algo de allí, ya sea ropa, comida, regalos, todo vale.

One day different shopping

This is definitely one of the places you always want me back, since I first visited ten years. I have been many times but it always surprises me ... It is a unique place in many ways. As a neighborhood, you can you lose a whole day touring all lanes, each with its own personality, with lots of different and interesting shops where you can find gothic, futuristic clothing, collectibles, crafts .... is easy to spend hours without even realizing it you dislike shopping ... As people usually spend some time wandering through the shops, there are a lot of posts with many takeaways for everyone: Chinese, Indian , Italian ... Very peculiar rows of seats bikes along the canal where you can sit and eat. I find it very curious also the variety of people go through this market ... Many tourists of course, but also many local people with totally different styles. All this located in a neighborhood along a canal where there are small shops boat (as seen in photo) with second-hand books, etc ... that gives this market a distinctive touch. It is a popular place and I think you can not go to London without visiting ... Highly recommended!

Un día de compras diferente

Este es sin duda uno de los lugares a los que siempre me apetece volver, desde la primera vez que lo visité con diez años. He estado muchas veces pero siempre me sorprende...Es un lugar singular en muchos sentidos.
Al ser un barrio, te puedes perder un día entero recorriendo todas sus callejuelas, cada una con su personalidad, con una gran cantidad de tiendas diferentes y curiosas en las que puedes encontrar ropa gótica, futurista, objetos de colección, artesaní fácil que pasen las horas sin darte cuenta aunque no te guste ir de compras...
Como la gente suele pasar bastante tiempo paseando entre las tiendas, hay una gran parte con muchos puestos de comida para llevar para todos los gustos: china, india, italiana...Son muy peculiares unas hileras de asientos de motos a lo largo del canal donde te puedes sentar a comer.

Me parece muy curiosa también la variedad de gente pasa por este mercado...Muchos turistas por supuesto, pero también mucha gente local con estilos totalmente diferentes.

Todo esto situado en un barrio a lo largo de un canal en el que también hay pequeñas tiendas-barco (como se ve en la foto) con libros de segunda mano, etc...que le da a este mercado un toque peculiar.
Es un lugar muy conocido y creo que no te puedes ir de Londres sin visitarlo...¡Muy recomendable!

The alternative district of london

Camden Town is a neighborhood north of central London which clashes with classical and tidy which is the rest of the city. Here thrive quirky shops, street food stalls and especially the good atmosphere, with a touch bohemian. Visiting Camden Town will surprise the shops that sell the most peculiar clothes and antiques and anything we imagine, especially if it is odd. It is advisable to visit the neighborhood at lunchtime, by the large number of posts that are a good price, and because we can enjoy the atmosphere and relax on the banks of the river, where we find a gap. A must-see in London.

El barrio alternativo de londres

Camden Town es un barrio al norte del centro de Londres que choca con lo clásica y ordenada que es el resto de la ciudad. Aquí prosperan las tiendas extravagantes, los puestos de comida callejera y sobre todo el buen ambiente, con cierto toque bohemio.
Al visitar Camden Town nos sorprenderán las tiendas, que venden ropa de lo más peculiar, así como antigüedades y cualquier cosa que imaginemos, sobre todo si es extraña.
Es recomendable visitar el barrio a la hora de comer, por la gran cantidad de puestos que hay a buen precio, y porque podemos disfrutar del buen ambiente y el relax a orillas del río, siempre que encontremos un hueco.

Una visita imprescindible en Londres.
